What size should images be for Amazon? Your Amazon image size should be at least 1000 pixels tall or wide by at least 1600 pixels tall or wide. You can’t exceed 10,000 pixels. If your images are too big, you can resize them without sacrificing the quality. With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), you store your products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products. FBA can help you scale your business and reach more customers.

Amazon is the #1 marketplace in North America. In 2020 alone, Amazon accounted itself accounted for nearly a third of eCommerce in the US.

Most of Amazon’s success is because of their third-party sellers. In fact, around 50% of their sold items are from third-party businesses. And in 2018, nearly three-quarters of Amazon business had between just one and five employees.

The best part? It’s extremely easy to set up an account and sell your first item. I’ve even done it myself.

Follow my step-by-step the process to sell your first items through Amazon FBA.

What is Amazon FBA and why should I use it?

Amazon is the reason why most consumers expect fast and free shipping. With their pioneering Amazon Prime program, members can receive free and guaranteed one-day and two-day delivery for Prime eligible products.

So, wouldn’t it be great if you could also offer fast and free shipping on the items you sell? Good news, you can!

That’s the reason you use Amazon FBA. With Amazon FBA, you simply ship your items to an Amazon warehouse and they take care of the rest for you. So, if you ship them one box with 25 items you want to sell, Amazon will pick, pack and ship each of those items for you as they’re sold.

For many, Amazon FBA is a smart and cost-effective way to ship your items. While you pay a fee for this service, you’re providing an excellent customer service that leads to happy customers and repeat purchases.

How to Sell on Amazon for Beginners Using FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon)

These are the exact steps I took to sell my first few items on Amazon using using FBA.

Step 1: How to Create an Amazon Seller Account

First, you need to create an Amazon account if you don’t already have one. Go to this page here to create one.

Next, you can register your new Amazon account as a seller account.

Amazon Seller

Be sure to read the “Before Your Register” section on the webpage. It provides info about the two types of Amazon Seller accounts, Professional and Individual.

Don’t know which account type to use? The answer is simple: if you’re going to sell more than 40 items a month, use a Professional account; otherwise, select an Individual account.

Why is 40 items the cut off point? Amazon will charge you $0.99 per item when selling on an Individual account. So, if you’re going to sell 40 items a month, you might as well pay for the $40 a month Professional account.

In my case, I was only selling a few items, so I chose an Individual account.

Once you choose your account type, you’ll be asked to login or create an Amazon account using your preferred email. From then on you will need to provide:

  1. Business Name and Address
  2. Agree to Seller agreement
  3. Mobile or Telephone Number
  4. Billing Method/Deposit – Chargeable Credit Card for Professional Account
  5. Tax information – If signing up for Professional Account

For your seller information, you’ll need to provide your name and address, as well as a “Display name”. This will be the name buyers see next to the item you’re selling. It can be anything you want, but remember it’s public. I chose “BilboBaggins50” because I was selling some old Lord of the Rings video games.

Next, you must verify your identity through a phone call or text message.

Lastly, enter your credit card and bank information for deposits. You’ll need access to your 9-digit routing and bank account number.

Your account is now created! Now, you should be greeted with a home screen that looks fairly empty.

Step 2: How to List Your Items on Amazon

Once you have your account, you need to list the items you want to sell.

For some people, we may be skipping a crucial step – choosing what items to sell. However, for this tutorial, I’m going to assume you’ve already done this. If you don’t know what to sell first, simply find some items around your house you want to get rid of (that’s what I did).

To add your first product, you want to go to “Inventory” in the top of your screen and click “Add a Product”.

Once you click “Add a Product” you will be prompted to search for your product. I searched by barcode, however you can also search by the product name. Unless you’re selling an item you manufactured (which I’m assuming you’re not), you shouldn’t need to create a new product.

Note: Each product sold on Amazon has its own unique identifier called an Amazon ASIN. It’s important to match your product with an existing ASIN or create a new one if you manufacture your own product. You can be penalized for creating a new ASIN for a product that already exists.

Once you select your product, you’ll be taken to a screen to enter important product information. There are three main things you must enter.

  1. The price you want to sell your item for
  2. What condition your item is in
  3. Whether you want Amazon to ship the item or you want to ship it yourself

Read more about Amazon product listing optimization best practices.

For pricing, you choose what you feel comfortable selling your item at. Personally, I searched for the item on Amazon, looked at the used items that were eligible for free shipping, and priced my item slightly lower than the lowest price available. I wanted to make sure that I sold my games quickly.

For the condition, be as honest and descriptive as you can. All you are required to enter for the condition is a selection of “Acceptable”, “Good”, etc. However, you’ll be much more likely to sell it if you offer an additional description. Is your game missing the manual, but has the cover? Mention it. Is the book a library book you bought? Add this info too.

Don’t list an item at a better condition than it is. You won’t get away with it. If a customer expects a “like-new” book, they won’t accept one with tears and highlighting and they’ll request a refund. If you aren’t honest, customers will leave negative reviews, which will make it almost impossible for you to sell in the future.

Lastly, you want to make sure you select “I want Amazon to ship and provide customer service for my items if they sell.” This is essentially the “I want to use FBA option”.

If you made sure to select that check box, and this is your first time selling on Amazon using FBA, Amazon will send you to a registration screen. Simply read and accept the terms of service here.

Step 3: How to Convert Your Items to Fulfillment by Amazon Items

I know what you’re thinking, “Why do I need to convert my items to FBA items if I just selected them to be fulfilled by Amazon?”. This just gives you the option to use Amazon FBA. You don’t have to use FBA for every item you sell. There are some items that can’t be shipped through Amazon FBA either. Therefore, you need to go into your account and manually select which items you want to fulfill through Amazon FBA.

To do this, go to the “Inventory” tab in your Seller Central homepage and click “Manage Inventory”. From here you’ll want to select the “Actions” drop down for each produce and select “Change to Fulfilled by Amazon”.

Please note: Once converted, your listings will be temporarily removed from Amazon.com until the inventory has been received at Amazon’s fulfillment center. So, you must finish the entire process to list and sell your items through Amazon FBA.

Once you change your inventory to Fulfilled by Amazon, you’ll be asked about two preferences:

  1. FBA Label Service
  2. Stickerless, Commingled Inventory

If you’re selling new items, you can use stickerless, commingled inventory. This means that Amazon will commingle your inventory with other sellers’ matching units. If someone orders from you, Amazon might ship a matching unit that is actually from a different seller, but in warehouse closer to the customer. This allows Amazon to ship items faster for better customer service.

(If you’re choosing commingled inventory, please be aware of the risks. If another seller sells counterfeit products, they could be shipped in lieu of your authentic products before Amazon notices. Read more here.)

In my case, I accepted this because I was not selling anything new.

Of the two, FBA Label Service was much more important to me. With their Label Service, Amazon puts a label (think white product sticker) on your items for you, instead of you doing it yourself.

I accepted the label service because I didn’t want to print out my own stickers. It was only 20 cents per item to have Amazon label my items. That being said, if you want to keep your margins high, you may consider printing your own stickers and labeling your products.

Once you select your options, you’ll be prompted to either “Convert Only” or “Convert & Send Inventory”. If you’re only selling one item, go ahead and select “Convert & Send Inventory”. If not, select “Convert Only” so we can add more items before we set up shipping.

Your item should now appear in your “Amazon-Fulfilled Inventory” under “Manage FBA Inventory” after viewing main “Inventory” tab in Seller Central.

Step 4: How To Create an Amazon FBA Shipping Plan

If you selected “Convert & Send Inventory” or if you have just added your second item, you will be prompted to create a shipping plan. For this you’ll need your Ship from address (most likely your house address) and your packing type.

There are two packing types: “Individual products” and “Case-packed products”. Most likely you’ll be selecting “Individual products”. Only select “Case-packed products” if you’re sending a box with all the same exact type of item in it. For example, a box of 20 Anchorman DVDs.

Once you set up a shipping plan, you will be prompted to add your items. Assuming this is the second item you’ve added, you should see two items. Select both.

Once you’ve created a shipping plan, you can add all the items you wish to sell. Simply go through the same process you went through for the first two items, however, when you get to the end select “Add to an existing shipping plan” rather than “Create a new shipping plan”.

Step 5: How to Ship Your Products to Amazon for FBA

Now that you have all your items in your shipping plan, it’s time to finally ship your items. To do this go to “Inventory” -> “Manage FBA Shipments” and then click “Continue with shipping plan”.

From here enter how many units of each item you’re sending. Then if your item requires prep (most don’t) select whether you or Amazon will prep them. Lastly, select whether you or Amazon will label the product.

Once you approve your shipment, you can purchase shipping from Amazon. You just need to know how much your package weighs. You can either put it on a bathroom scale, or (as I did) just estimate based on the items inside the package.

Once you print out your labels, stick them on your package and they’re ready to mail! Just drop them off at your local carrier like UPS.

Step 6: How to Sell Your First Item on Amazon

This is the easy part. Once you ship your package off to Amazon and they receive it, your items will be available for purchase.

Now, you sit and wait for your items to be sold.

If you are selling a more popular item, the wait isn’t that long. In my case, I listed 8 items, and they all sold within 15 days.

What is Amazon FBA?

Amazon’s newest business opportunity – Amazon fulfillment services – has received a great deal of attention in the last year or so. Many small and mid-size businesses have been quick to jump on the bandwagon, eager to benefit from the low overhead of Amazon’s fulfillment centers, the speed of online sales and the many benefits that can be derived from utilizing an online fulfillment center. One such benefit is the ability to outsource warehousing and inventory control to an online fulfillment service. While there are certainly many advantages and benefits to this arrangement for any sized business, one overlooked area of confusion and doubt has been the “FBA” issue of storage fees.

If you use Amazon’s e-commerce website, you probably already know that there are two primary methods of paying for your inventory: Credit cards or Paypal. Many small to mid-size e-commerce sites to choose credit card processing over the also common and accepted payment method known as Paypal. Either is fine for this business model as long as the funds are available to keep your store up and running.

One great bonus is that by using an online fulfillment company, such as Amazon, you can eliminate the need for an expensive third party storage facility and therefore eliminate many of the additional storage fees that larger e-commerce stores have to deal with. This is one huge perk that has e-com businesses making the move to Amazon’s platform. But how does Amazon’s FBA program work? And what does it have to do with your inventory?

How Does Amazon FBA Work?

Amazon is one of the biggest online retail stores in the world, and with the invention of Amazon FBA, they have put thousands of sellers in control of their entire business. Amazon FBA sellers do not need to stock any inventory or handle any shipping materials or accept credit cards, because Amazon does it all for them. The way that Amazon works is by letting FBA sellers (you) market and sell their merchandise. When an order comes in, Amazon sends the item from their warehouse to the customer eliminating the need for sellers to stock/store their products or ship them. Amazon takes care of it all from payment processed to getting the product in the hands of your customer.

FBA stands for “fulfilled by Amazon,” which means that instead of having to worry about stocking inventory, paying rent on a building for your store, and handling returns, Amazon takes care of it all for you. You manage your own seller account and set up your own return policies, but Amazon takes care of the storage and delivery side of things, so consider it like owning a warehouse in a popular department store. Amazon will deliver your merchandise when you receive it which saves you money on overhead costs. This gives you more time to focus on your customer service and offering incredible products that sell.

When it comes to finding success with an Amazon FBA business, the most important thing to remember is that you don’t need to be an expert on selling or even have a great website to get started. Instead, you should focus on providing excellent customer service and products to your customer base, and Amazon will do the rest. There are many benefits to using Amazon as your own fulfillment and return management partner, and many of them have to do with being able to control your business the way that you want it. Many sellers started as small businesses before Amazon gave them the chance to grow, and with Amazon’s reliable, efficient, and customer service-centered fulfillment program, they have no reason to not take advantage of all the opportunities the program has to offer.

How to Source Your Products for Amazon

If you want to start selling on Amazon and have no idea how to source your products for Amazon, there are a few simple steps that you can take to ensure that all of the products you want to offer your customers are available in the warehouse for purchase. One of the major factors in succeeding at Amazon FBA is product sourcing. It can mean the difference between complete success or disaster for your online store. You’ve got your niche, so what next? Sourcing your inventory.

You can write about these products and post them in blogs and websites related to your niche. When people buy these products, you will get a percentage of the sale.

Establishing Your FBA Brand

Establishing your Amazon FBA brand is a critical component of launching an online business. Without a name brand you have virtually no chance of survival. When someone thinks of buying a book, they think of either the famous bookstore located in a high-end mall or of the huge book store that may be found in just about any big city. The thought thought process behind these two mental images is because of good branding. There are many opportunities for you to establish both of these powerful images in your area.

Once you have a name for your Amazon brand, you can turn your website into a virtual storefront. Some people refer to websites as digital stores. Your website will showcase your products. It will also display any customer reviews that may be posted about your products. You will want to collect email addresses for follow up information on customers, which can be obtained by asking them to sign up for your list at Amazon.

When you are ready to launch your Amazon storefront, make sure that you select a product that will have broad appeal. You may also want to consider creating several different versions of your product so that you can be offered more variety in terms of pricing. It may be helpful to create a template for your website and to use this template in different places on the site. You can use this to create different homepages for each version of your product.

Creating Your Amazon Seller Account

Before you get started, there are a few things that you need to know and consider. One is that you will have to have an Amazon account to even be considered for a selling job on Amazon. If you do not have an account set up on Amazon, then you are going to have to get one before you can begin any type of Amazon business.

If you have your own account on Amazon and are ready to sell, know your niche, and have sourced some suppliers then the next thing that you are going to have to do is find appropriate products to sell on their marketplace. There are millionss of products that are available worldwide and you will want to make sure that you pick those that you think are going to be popular among your target audience. As a buyer you’re likely aware that the more popular products on Amazon are those that are in the price range that is most affordable for most Amazon shoppers.

Is Starting an Amazon Business Still Worth It in 2021?

The simple answer is yes, but only if you choose the right business. The most important factor to consider when starting an Amazon business is not whether or not it is a good business. The most important thing to consider is whether or not it will be popular. And if it won’t be popular, then is starting an Amazon business worth it in 2021?
